The primary recommendation is for all countries to begin using the Open Data Protocol (OData), managed by the Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards (OASIS). The use of OData will allow compatibility among law enforcement tools within the global community in managing illicit images and video regardless of vendor. All countries should also have a national center that manages the material and supports victim-centric investigations and identification efforts. These recommendations were among the most significant items discussed by VGT members who most recently met in Wellington to develop new strategies and technological solutions that will allow law enforcement to better identify, locate and safeguard children who have been sexually exploited, with the aim of protecting children everywhere.
Major General Nasser Al Nuaimi, Representative of UAE at the VGT and Chairman of the Child Protection Higher Committee, Ministry of Interior, said the UAE was integrating its efforts to protect the children in line with instructions by the leadership top establish the UAE as a role model in the region for child protection and safety.
”Through its VGT membership, the UAE is committed to enhance international cooperation as enabler for protection and prevention. It is also committed to the VGT objectives, and international best practices and latest developments in regards to security and safety of community and spread awareness about potential challenges related to children,” he said.
The UAE is the first Middle Eastern country to have joined the Virtual Global Taskforce: an international partnership of law enforcement agencies, non-government organisations and industry that aims to help protect children from online child abuse.
